Services for Individuals

Open Doors Transition Program

BCID is a partner in the New York Association on Independent Living’s Open Doors program, formerly known as Money Follows the Person. Our goal is to help people in┬ánursing homes and intermediate care facilities back into the community, where they can live independently. If you or someone you know is in a facility but could live independently with the right services, contact either Mehak Rizvi at mrizvi @bcid.org, Yvette Wilson at ywilson @bcid.org or both of them at 718-998-3000.

BCID also offers peer outreach, with one-on-one support from individuals who have had similar experiences. For more information, contact Gabriela Amari at 718-998-3000.

Our services are free. Call 718-998-3000 or write us at info@bcid.org to make an appointment or to find out more about our programs, including our support groups and advocacy work.
